What are MVP International Trips all about?

An international tour with MVP is much more than just a hockey trip, it is an opportunity to represent the red, white, and blue overseas. More importantly, it is an opportunity to connect with the world at large through a shared common passion, ice hockey. You will meet and interact with players from the host teams both on and off the ice... giving you the chance to see the world through their eyes, understand how they live, and create international friendships. For some it may open your eyes, for some it may bring a new friend into your life, and for others - it may be the next stepping stone in yout hockey career.  

All of this while being led by a team of professionals on a 'handled for you', family-oriented, cultural vacation.
